Web UI/UX Designer

This job ad goes out to all the pioneers, forerunners, mavericks and doers who want to find a purpose in what they are doing and take responsibility for their actions. With Blinkist, we’ve created a meaningful product that is growing fast. Our blinks, key insight summaries of the world’s best nonfiction, help our one million users to learn more, each and every day. One of the key ways we’re doing this is by taking a truly customer-first approach to design; we listen to our customers and design for them. To help us reach even more people, we are looking for a designer with a passion for growth-hacking.

As our UI/UX Web Designer you will:

- Be the lead designer for web, designing entities such as the Blinkist website and our online magazine

- Design creative solutions that drive conversions and deliver a great experience for potential users and current customers

- Work collaboratively with a high-energy team of engineers and marketeers to envision, plan, test and optimize web-based growth initiatives

- Iterate often and quickly using learnings from analytics and other sources to create improved tests and experiences that work (as evidenced by data)

- Think strategically about how to ship designs in smaller parts to validate assumptions

- Produce high quality designs that follow existing brand guidelines

- Document your solutions so that you and other stakeholders can learn from past tests

- Help maintain the web style-guide by documenting design patterns/assets

- Be a key member of the Design team and passionate about championing design culture and user needs within Blinkist

To do this, we believe you should have:

- At least 2 years of web/digital design related experience

- A portfolio that demonstrates your problem-solving and visual design skills

- Experience designing for web (including responsive design)

- Good judgement; you’re able to balance using data to inform your designs whilst keeping a focus on producing human-centric experiences

- Clear communication skills; you’re able to justify your design work in a clear manner

- No ego, plenty of enthusiasm; you know that testing can require many iterations and not all ideas will hit the mark the first time but you’re excited about trying different ideas to get there

- A clear, defined workflow and a process for solving problems

- The ability to accept and resolve feedback graciously

- A collaborative spirit; you’re able to provide solid feedback and help to other design team members

- Experience with user testing & frontend development experience as a plus

At our Berlin HQ we offer a fantastic workplace including all the benefits you’d expect – from free drinks, and fresh fruits to furious foosball fights, plus an awesome, smart bunch of coworkers. To run our organization, we got rid of management hierarchy and now operate under our own version of Holacracy, a system that distributes authority among all colleagues. So, we strongly believe in the advantages of self-organization and autonomous working. Add a competitive salary, flexible working hours, and a meaningful product on the rise, and you have a first impression of why Blinkist is a great place to work.

If we’ve captured your interest, apply now and let us know why you are the perfect fit for the job!
